A Nation Blest - Poem by AHO Speaks
From the riches of the earth rose this nation
A wonderous beauty, a garden of Eden; such a creation.
Rivers of blue layed upon a carpet of green and mountains too
Such beauty, created; for just you and you.
Fertile land that renews after each harvest and crop
To feed the hungry, the poor; and hopefully never stop.
Surrounded by two oceans of vasteness and other nations
My God, my God; they are such beautiful creations.
A nation covered by a sky of white and blue
As a haven of refuge for those out of the book of Hebrew.
Released from bondage both black and white
To love one another and share this wonderous sight.
From north to south and east to west
Truly a nation of peoples who are blest.
Through the centuries they came and some brought
Working together and holding the freedom they sought.
One no different than the other
A family of peoples like a sister and brother.
The founding fathers wrote and even more
From Washington to Lincoln as in 'Four Score'.
Predjudice, hate and even fear
Tries to creep in and destroy those who are dear.
Each time a new president seems to appear
From Roosevelt to Kennedy; with acts that were sincere.
We keep asking why they come and go before their time
To help a people out of predjudice and fear to climb.
How many times will there be a leader to sing
Will there be an end to presidents; and Martin Luther King?
Will we end up destroying because of predjudice and hate
How much longer can we endure and what is to be our fate?
We are truly a melting pot of peoples who love life
When will be the time to join together; and end the strife?
How can we have peace in the world and turmoil within
Peoples of the world look and wait for a new peace to begin..
Once we join together so will all the others
For they want peace and are our sisters and brothers.
Fear, anger and predjudice will try to enter along with greed
But the tree of peace cannot start unless we plant the seed.
No nation of peoples whose leaders know the value of life
Want their homelands destroyed; because of war or strife.
Whites, Blacks, Indians, Asians want to stop human waste
A peace to share their freedoms for a better life to taste.
Not war, amarments, nor power is the plea
But to contribute to a better world you see.
Trust is important and encouraged rather than denied
Leaders of the world; when will you start; your people cried.
How much can be saved and used for your peoples on earth
Share, cooperate, be trustful; and give your people their worth
In the development and exchange of ideas and things
Help and share in the bounty; this beaufiful world doth bring.
Your estate and your inheritance to the children should be
A loving creative, peaceful world; their eyes should see.
Those who distrust and cause pain and war
Will rue the day, this life they ever saw.
Your greed, drive for expansion and rule over others
Never a place of permancy; over your own sisters and brothers.
The freedom of self expression to contribute and to share
Show them that you do really love; and really do care.
